    Foodies' heaven! Come on Thursday with less crowd. Get a coffee at Monmouth, then Richard Haward's oysters as starter, and choice of a good wrap from Fish! or Chorito. And sample the CHEESE and olives

    Incredible selection of foods. Artisanal and traditional alike, there's something for everyone. I could have spent all day here eating and drinking my way through the stalls. Great option for lunch.

    Go to Kappacasein (find it on 4sq. The location is accurate). It's grilled cheese heaven. As good as the grilled cheese sandwich may be, you should try the Raclette AKA Heart Attack on a Plate

    They have everything you can possibly imagine and more. Just love the atmosphere. ✨Try to avoid popular times it can get very crowded.

    One of the three must see markets in London after Portobello and Camden, but this one is quite different as it mainly about food and fresh vegetable and fruits. Come on Thur., Fri., or Sat.

    Bustling, busy, but an absolute must if you're visiting London! It is covered so no worries if it is raining. Stalls offer lots of great produce. Food stands are great. I recommend Soul Food!

    Fresh Fruit & Veggies. Must visit in London. One of the best coffees in London: pop into Monmouth coffee shop: avoid Mornings, otherwise you will definitely be stuck in 20m queue. But it's worth it!

    Come to Borough Market with an empty stomach. Then go nuts. Crowd favorites include the beer-battered fish and chips from Fish! and the duck confit sandwich from Le Marché du Quartier. Read more

    One of the most magical places in London if you're a foodie. Make sure to try the mushroom pâté at "paté moi" and grab a coffee at Monmouth! The pottery at Richard Bramble also makes for fab gifts.

    Quite possibly tastiest and most generous hog roast roll ever, served with crackling and gorgeous bread. Just perfect! (You'll find them right next to the church across from fish!)

    One of the liveliest market ive ever been. Ate vanilla classic doughnut from bread n doughnut. It was good. Apart from that pls try slow roasted tomatoes in garlic infused oil and mushroom pate.

    More of a market where you buy items to take with you instead of prepared items to eat there, though there's a good selection of both! Fun to walk around, lots of free samples

    I visit this market almost every time I’m in London. I love this market but over the years it has become very touristy lol. I had the traditional Scottish egg and chorizo sandwich both were very good.

    The only problem with this market is that no matter what food you get, you’ll want what everyone else has. Eat all the things.

    No trip to LDN is complete without a visit to Borough market; stop by the duck sandwich shop and prepare to be amazed. Same applies for Porteña, the Argentinean empanadas shop. Tons of fresh produce

    Widley considered to be the best market in the country, and it is. One of my favourite places in the whole world, get there early to avoid crowds and get a cheeky sausage sandwich.

    There's not much that isn't good here. If you want a good take on a British classic though, head to the stalls under the bridge and get yourself a warm scotch egg with sweet potato fries. Delicious.
